DES MOINES, Iowa–Those driving along Interstate-235 may notice a typo on one of the exit signs.

The sign in the Westbound lanes at Exit 7A reads “DMS Airport” rather than “DSM Airport.”

The sign went up Tuesday night, and Iowa DOT officials were made aware of the mistake shortly thereafter.

It says it was a production mistake and a fix is already in the works.

“We produced a patch that overlays over the three letters that are the mistake and that will correct the misspelling,” says Iowa DOT Spokesperson Andrea Henry.

The replacement patch will cost a little more than $100 and will be installed by the end of the week.
